Easter is the most astonishing day in the history of the world. But after a morning’s celebration, it seems to be all but over. We find ourselves moving on to less exalted matters. We have a Bank Holiday.
This highly readable, creative and often humorous book reminds us that everything about our lives as believers is bathed in the glow of the resurrection – we really ought to enjoy living Easter through the year! Reflections on the events and their aftermath, suggestions of ways to celebrate the resurrection (including a month of daily readings), two courses for small groups – one based on gospel accounts of the resurrection, the other around art, poetry, music and film – prayer activities, drama, poetry, meditations, cartoons: all are provided here are reminders of how gloriously Easter can illuminate our everyday lives.

Leonard Sweet wants to show you the ins and outs of living an old-fashioned faith in these newfangled times. In his engaging, symphonic, thought-bytes style, Sweet invites you to…
Mezuzah your universe * Do dirt and do the dishes * Cycle to church
Give history a shove * Cheer rivals from the bench * Dance the salsa
Soul Salsa unpacks biblical faith in ways that can change how you live in the real world. You can be a man or woman who walks the ancient path of a disciple in the world of the future. Because the NEW future is NOW – and now is the time to practice the “17 Lifestyle Requirements for Membership in the Postmodern Body of Christ.” It’s no longer enough to “Say Amen, Somebody.” It’s time to “Dance the Salsa, Everybody!” – in a culture that desperately needs your moves.
The Linns have a knack for choosing topics that are very timely and communicating them in a way that speaks to our everyday experience. In this book they explore how we discover our unique calling and develop it as a gift – for ourselves, others and the earth. For those caught up in our hectic culture, this little book is a rich source for reflection and prayer that can be used either individually or with groups.
